The Summer Reading Challenge takes place every year during the summer holidays to help children keep up their reading skills and confidence. The theme of this year’s challenge is Animal Agents. We will be travelling to local libraries to join in the fun so come and make your own detective ID badge and fun disguise before helping to crack the case! The activity lasts for an hour and is most suitable for children aged 4 – 11yrs. For more information and other ways to join in with this year’s Summer Reading Challenge visit animal-agents.org.uk.
